Book Analyzes

This book (15 years after its first edition) is addressed more particularly to the surgeons who begin in the surgery reconstructive from the upper limb allowing them to find algorithms simple as well as an atlas of the scraps available.

The first chapter relates to the algorithms adapted at the same time at the various stages of the diagnosis but also to the choices of the various techniques and also at the stages of the treatment (lesion of the flexor tendons for example). Illustrated examples are used as a basis for the algorithms of lesions more complex as, for example, for a wound by firearm.

It follows a large chapter from there on the various scraps running, abundantly illustrated more by drawings and photographs.

The book ends in the protocols of rehabilitation and classifications.

On the whole it is a rich book, sometimes a little bulky, which will be useful in all the emergency services to decide in an adequate way of the action to be taken front, during and after the surgical assumption of responsibility.
